Location is good, bathroom facilities appalling, dirty and needs massively modernising. Stayed in a four bed mixed dorm, lockers large, beds reasonable. Aircon in room. Could have potential but the bathrooms really let this place down. WiFi average. Would i stay again, no. The bathroom isn't fit to wash a dog in.

We are sorry to hear that you were not happy with the bathroom facilities at Marine Tourist Guest House. While we always strive to keep our bathroom clean, we have regular scheduled cleaning times. Our hardworking staff cannot really monitor round the clock all the comings and goings of our guests. That is why we encourage everyone to foster the...

This is our first trip to Sri Lanka and we came here straight from the airport. The guest house advised us (via email after we enquiries) about the price of a taxi. They were helpful and friendly when we arrived. On our first morning they were happy to give us breakfast even though it was half an hour after the...

Our second visit to Marine Guest house which is a very friendly family run place. It is very near the beach, many restaurants and transport is at the door. Buses, Tuctucs and taxis are available. Housekeeping is very good and the breakfast is generous. Nothing seems too much trouble for the owner or his family. The rooms are spacious and...

Accommodating staff welcomed us at 4.00am after our flight landed. Clean, comfortable room. Friendly staff and good location. Easy for the beach, restaurants and shops. We liked this place, but go elsewhere for breakfast.

Came straight here after a 14hour flight - the room was perfect! Clean, spacious and a big 4 poster bed! The staff were friendly and advised with onward travel, and there were lots of restaurants and bars next door. Breakfast not included but think it was cheap as an extra :) would recommend.

3주동안 스리랑카를 여행하던중 휴식차 네곰보에 일주일을 머물렀어요 처음 이틀을 여기서 지내고 다른 호텔에서 2박하고는 다시 마린으로 와서 5일을 머물렀네요 네곰보해변근처 비싼호텔을 제외하고 거의 보았지만 가격,시설,전망,위치,친절,청결에서 최고입니다. 하나 아쉬운점은 룸에서는 와이파이신호가 약해요. 며칠전 돈과 보석이 들어 있는 지갑을 잃어버리고 낙심하고 있었는데 사장님께선 제가 사모사를 먹고 싶다고 한걸 기억하시고는 다음날 시내를 다녀오시면서 일부러 맛있는 가게까지 가셔서 제게 사모사를 사서 선물해 주셨습니다. 스리랑카에서...

Good place to say if you want somewhere quite cheap and nice! The rooms were lovely, clean and spacious! Bathroom was big with a shower and hot water! Absolutely no insects or mossies flying about as long as you keep your balcony door closed. Also you get a lovely sea view! The room is also nice and cool with a...

Well it's to warn you fellow-travelers about low practice this guest is capable of using. We came to Negombo around 10 p.m. after very long flight only to find out that our booking was cancelled by its owner/manager without any notification sent to us. The guy said that he tried to charge my credit card several days before our arrival...
